Software, Device Programming/Testing, Implantable Cardiac Pacemaker

Definition : Device programming and testing software designed for non-invasively re-programming (e.g., modifying the pacemaker rate) and testing implantable cardiac pacemakers, control/monitor a limited number of the implanted pacemaker functions, and/or process data obtained from the pacemaker. This software is intended to work with one or a few models of infusion pump programmer/testers, usually from the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the measurements performed while assessing and/or changing the characteristics (i.e., programming) of the implanted cardiac pacemaker; the software may also transmit and/or receive information from hospital information systems. Implantable cardiac pacemaker programming/testing software is not usually available separate from the tester but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the programmer/tester; the software is mainly used in particular areas of a healthcare facility such as cardiac and neurology departments. Dedicated implantable pacemaker programming/testing software is also available for implantable defibrillator/pacemakers.
